Herb and lime marinated fish

Herb and lime marinated fish

Olive oil, lime juice and delicate Spring herbs combine to create the perfect marinade for fish, atop a creamy, sweet puree of minted peas that will surprise and delight your residents.

Cooking tips

  1. As fish is more delicate than chicken or beef, avoid leaving strong citrus-based marinades on fish for more than 10 to 15 minutes or you will end up with ceviche. The acid in ingredients such as lemons or limes will ‘cook’ the fish if given the time.
  2. Store-bought marinades can contain sugar and preservatives, additives or gluten. By making the marinade yourself, it’s simpler, healthier and allergy friendly.
  3. Fish is a good source of fats, protein and omega 3 fatty acids and provides a broad nutrient panel of B vitamins, phosphorous, potassium and selenium.
  4. Olive oil and fresh lime juice aid healthy digestion.

  1. In a medium saucepan, add frozen peas and enough water to cover peas. Bring to a boil and boil until peas are tender—5-10 minutes.
  2. Drain peas and rinse with cold water. Add peas along with mint leaves, greek yoghurt, half & half to a blender or food processor. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Purée until smooth. Tip the purée into a fine sieve and use the back of the ladle to push it through – this will give you a silky-smooth finish.You can also use an immersion blender for easier cleanup. Set aside or refrigerate until ready to use.
